Psycho

Phoenix secretary Marion Crane (Janet Leigh), on the lam after stealing $40,000 from her employer in order to run away with her boyfriend, Sam Loomis (John Gavin), is overcome by exhaustion during a heavy rainstorm. Traveling on the back roads to avoid the police, she stops for the night at the ramshackle Bates Motel and meets the polite but highly strung proprietor Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins), a young man with an interest in taxidermy and a difficult relationship with his mother.

1960. 1h 49m. Narrative, Horror/Thriller. R.

“What makes Psycho immortal, when so many films are already half-forgotten as we leave the theater, is that it connects directly with our fears.”

Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times

“Paramount won’t let anyone enter theatres where Psycho is playing after the picture starts. No one will want to leave before it is over.”

Jack Harrison - Hollywood Reporter

“Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 masterpiece blends a brutal manipulation of audience identification and an incredibly dense, allusive visual style to create the most morally unsettling film ever made.”

Dave Kehr - Chicago Reader
